apolonia I totally agree with you, you couldn't have said it any better. That our babies choose us & choose when to come to us. With that being said you put my mind at peace. Thank you!!!!!
BABY DUST TO US ALL!!!!!

I get dizzy too, am getting up to pee during the night (which seems new and unusual), I have weird cramping sensations but they do not seem like period cramps. 
Temps still high for me, yay! I am not a cervix checker. So I can't help there. 
I would like to think that our babies choose us and choose when to come to us, so your little one will be here when he or she is meant to be here! Enjoy your new home!

Thanks...I am at the point where I dont really know whats going on. My breasts hurt BAD for almost a week. Now they barely hurt at all, and when I say barely, I mean very minimal. I know that our blessings come to us when they are ready. I was actually on the depo shot when I conceived my son. I was 26 and scared to death, but I managed with him, and he was the best thing that ever happened to me. Now I am 30 and ready for a new addition and it seems impossible. Maybe I am trying too hard. She or he will bless me when they are ready. Ive decided not to test again until af doesnt show. Thanks for your comment. So...you would be due at the beginning of December too? My sons birthday is November 1st 2006. I will keep posting, and let you know if she shows. Got 2 more days. However, I have no symptoms, my face has even cleared up, which is unusual. However, when I was pregnant with my son, and at the beginning of the 2 I lost, my skin was clearer than ever. Who knows though. Could just be wishful thinking.

I had my temp rise today so O was yesterday, as expected. With the BD troubles this month, we managed -5,-4,-3,-1. I was sad to miss -2 and O, but we did manage one day in the 3 day window. So I have a small possibility.
The guafenisin helped, with 5 days EWCM instead if the usual 2.

So now we relax and wait. I am actually relieved to be through BD season. When things calm down I'm going to talk to him about our approach next month. I was thinking that I might tell him the 3 days and then do nothing and leave it totally up to him. It will be hard not to push things, but maybe that would give him more freedom and we wouldn't be so antagonistic. Anyone had a strategy that worked (if I do nothing we would miss the window and if he spots my chasing he resists!!)

Baby dust to those waiting to test

Well...today, so far, my cervix is still high, mostly soft, and moist. Still getting dizzy when I stand. Still no af symptoms, but that could be because or all the symptoms I have already had. Maybe they were just early af symptoms. One more day and af should he here. Pray that she doesnt show her ugly face ladies.

Hi, everyone.  I think I'm back in the TWW so am de-lurking.  

 

My cycle has been all out of whack, so it's hard to be sure, but here's hoping.  My period was extra long and heavy from the chemical pregnancy that I think I had last month.  And I think that O was delayed as a result.  I am actually happy about that because my normal O date would have happened while I was still across the country from my DH, but the delay allowed us to get one BD in.  Because of the travel (across 3 time zones), my temps are all messed up and it's hard to confirm ovulation on FF, but my CM makes me pretty optimistic that I ovulated on the 25th.  I know the chances are slim with only one BD, but I'll take it!  

 

 

Dahlia--what beautiful pics, congrats!

 

And Cressy, Apolonia, and AngelBaby--FX for you!  Cressy, you totally sound like you are still in--I admire your strength in not testing!

Hi all,

I posted a few days ago. Still waiting....AF is due on the 6th. My husband and I decided we might as well try this month. Not sure if we hit my cycle at the right time (I think I had a chemical pregnancy last month, too, Larski, and I'm not sure exactly when I ovulated.) But we've had sex pretty much every day except for three during the likely time frame so I think we're good. 

 

With my daughter, I knew I was pregnant before I could even test. This time, I seem to be experiencing the same symptoms: bleeding gums when flossing, occasional light-headedness/dizziness, exhaustion (I used to manage on 5 hrs sleep, now I'm tired 2 hours after waking from an 8-hour sleep), slightly tender breasts, and I seem to be crying easier. Read a few birth stories and actually welled up for all of them. Rare for me. ;)

 

I'm trying to be patient. I work from home so I'm easily distracted by forums such as this one, but I'm trying to stay focused. I have an EPT that I *could* use in a few days but I think I will wait until the fifth. 

 

Good luck to everyone here hoping for a BFP!!

 

And have a great Easter weekend.

Hi, 777.  No, I don't think my temps dropped notably.  It's kind of hard to tell because of the travel/time zone issues, but I don't think they were affected by the chemical pregnancy.  The only thing that it noticeably affected was my ovulation (delayed by a couple days).

Sorry about AF apolonia, I hope next cycle is successful.

Welcome back Larski!

Cressyhoke - I hope all your symptoms turn out to be the real thing. smile.gif

Dahlia - Beautiful baby! I hope your next two trimesters are comfortable and happy. love.gif:

AFM - 6dpo. I'm on progesterone, so I cannot reliably symptom spot at all. It's been a cheerful and stress-free cycle until I called my insurance this afternoon to get clarification of my IF benefits. My coverage is a joke. Took the wind right out of my sails. I thought I was home free since I met my deductable, but nope. IF has an additional deductable and a very low maximum allowance. Lame. Hopefully I'll get lucky and either be pregnant this cycle (yeah right), or at least maybe some of the labs and diagnostic stuff will be covered under my medical coverage. Plus, meds have really gone up in price since my last round of IF.

"Back in my day, Follistim was $60 a vial." *spoken in my best old lady voice* lol.gif

Despite all that I'm looking forward to my consult with my new RE on Tuesday.

Married to my high school sweetheart. We have four awesome kids.

Well what the heck?

AF was normal period heavy yesterday. Today barely a trickle. I normally have a 5 day period, with the first 3 days being relatively heavy.

This cycle is really freaking odd.

ok.. so I have to admit ,.. that I caved and tested today at 8DPO... (only because for my first pregnancy (ended in MC), I tested and I knew 6 days before my period) and today would be 6 days before AF.. so I think I saw what was the a very very faint line... I'm not getting my hopes up.. but I"ll test back in about 2 days to make sure.. I should be 10DPO on Sunday which would be good .. I have no symptons except for the kinda  tender boobs (on the sides below my arm ) and a few mild cramping every now and then and some neasousa .. yesterday was horrible.. I could barely stay awake and fell asleep by 8pm.. I couldn't even stay awake for my class... (good thing I have online classes lol)...  Keeping fingers cross that I get a good BFP...

Apologies for my lengthy delay but huge congrats, Dahlia!! That's awesome news :) I have my ultrasound in a little less than 2 weeks, so excited! My family is still convinced that we have twins growing here. Will know for sure April 9!

 

I agree with Ocelotmom about the internet cheapies, as soon as you purchase a whole bunch, you'll get a positive! My positive happened a few cycles after my 'investment' but they were so helpful. And for only $15-$20, you get a lot. I ordered through Amazon (I know many mamas use Ebay) and got an assortment, I think 50 OPKs and 25 HPTs. Truly a good deal. My Wondfo HPTs were way more sensitive then even my FRER. I got a + at 8 DPO with Wondfos.

 

Still thinking of you all and cheering you on, though quietly over here, mostly lurking. hug.gif Mamas!!

Lovely to hear from you sparkle! Good luck for your scan. Post a pic if you can, I am cheering you on :-)

Angel- congrats on the faint line, that sounds really encouraging so early. Keep us posted in your next test. Brilliant news!!

Fingers crossed to all you waiting to test.

For me, I'm now 2 dpo and its a relief to be through the season. I'm chilling and enjoying Easter. Happy Easter to you all!

Oh, mamaBlue, that really sucks about your insurance. I really really hope that this is your cycle!!  FX!

 

777--is it possible that your ovulation has been delayed and that's why you're getting those lower temps?

 

Angelbaby, how exciting!  Can't wait for your updates! How about you, Cressy, have you tested yet?!

 

Ocelotmom, how many days of "normal" period did you have--just one?  Also, I agree with SparkleMaman that the internet cheapies are the way to go.

 

Oxford, Happy Easter to you--and to everyone else!
